Home Sweet Home

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Spent all day yesterday being busy. I am in my efficiency apartment and I can tell you I am so happy. I was tearing boxes down until 10 p.m. and putting stuff away.

I couldn't believe I could move around without worrying about disturbing anyone. Also no T.V. IT IS SO PEACEFUL. I hate TV except for weather and news. Someday I will take the plunge, but not for a while. Maybe by Christmas.

It is to get up to 90 degrees today, so I am going to close for now, before I have to walk HOME IN ALL THAT HEAT. LOVE JOYCE

    I'm so happy for you!!! I really understand what you mean by being able to move about without worrying about other people. When I am alone, I LOVE being able to listen to my own music, my own inner voice or my own silence!
Enjoy creating your own space. It is your refuge from the world, your pallet for your brush and an extension of your being. emoticon

4 Days

Monday, August 25, 2014

I am pretty well packed up, ready to go. Excited isn't the word. I can go out and go places that I have to walk to catch transportation. Feeling like my life is starting over.

I will be free. So happy. Knowing my spark friends are happy for me. Oh, it took me 15 minutes to find out how to get to my spark page. I hate change, love the idea of my own place.

Love to all.

    You can do this and it will be a new start. We all have changes but there are benefits when you can get round and do what you want for yourself. Yes we are all happy for you. You have worked so hard for everyone and now it is time to do for your self.

8 Days and counting and hoping for no rain, at least in the morning or until 2 p.m.

I am so excited, all my stuff is in boxes in the living room. I can't believe it, Freedom at last. To be able to go out a door and be on a bus route or walk and get a Coleman's Fish Sandwich. Browse thru all the little stores and shops down there. I am just thrilled.

Can you all tell I am THRILLED. I want to shout it out on the roof top.

Have a Lovely Day!

I am getting my stuff put in boxes to move in 2 weeks and 4 days. I am so excited. I do not want to even think about staying here any longer. Jo Ann is just picking at me. That is OK because she will soon be doing everything all by herself.

Six thirty this morning before the down pour, I raked the front yard, and pulled weeds along the walk. I heard a neighbor yell, LUAU does all this for you. I just laughed and said How about a cup' of coffee. She said, Come on down. Yes I did, and I have been on the toilet most of the morning.

Jo Ann just can not stand the smell of coffee. Something has to be wrong with her.
Have to laugh, I will have to make sure Jo doesn't decide that I do not know how to box stuff up. Love

New Apartment

Friday, August 08, 2014

Sept. I will be moving into my new apartment. It is an efficiency. I am so excited. It is in a great area.

When I get it done, I will have someone take pictures and get them here.

I am so thrilled, I have a bed, queen, my computer table, and a chair, which eventually has to be redone, due to dogs. I cried when I actually thought of how it has been tore up in the last 2 yrs.

I will actually be 3 blocks or so from town. The week end of Labor day, there is a Boat Regatta at Heritage Port. A short walk, All the festivals, and fireworks are there. I will be in the mix.

Also for a while, I will not have internet, but have EASY access to library. I am not going to have a TV for a while. It is not a necessity.

I am so happy. Thanks to all those who prayed and my well wishers. Love
